Don’t let a rainy day stop you from getting outside, from the den step outside onto the 150 + square foot screened-in porch with a big overhead fan, 2 large motion chairs, sun shades and a bistro set. Watch the birds and listen to the running water of a bubbling fountain. The outside (3/4 acre) has extensive gardens with fruit trees, berry bushes, fenced backyard and lots of relaxing outdoor seating. There is a fire pit with four Adirondack chairs. The backyard has plenty of room for outdoor games, which includes Corn Hole, Giant Jenga, Badminton, with light up birdies for night games, Bocce Ball and of course Croquet.

We do allow no more than 2 small up to 30 lbs. dogs. There is a $150 fee. You must add them to your reservation. They must be crate trained and well behaved. We provide a very large crate with bedding, dog bowls, waterproof pet covers for them to lay on and a soggy dog for drying wet paws. Your fur baby must be freshly groomed prior to entering the house. They must not be left alone in the house, screened in porch or yard. If you need to leave them they must be safely in the crate. As beautiful as the house is, it is a strange place to them.

Why Susan & Rob Bucklin chose Northwest Raleigh
The house is very private, quiet and convenient to RDU airport, RTP, NCSU, UNC, Duke, downtown Raleigh & Durham, shopping, parks, NC Museum of Art and some great restaurants to name a few things. Raleigh is a great area with always something going on. We are just four hours away from the Blue Ridge Mountains on one side and two hours from the beaches on the other side. We look forward to hearing from you.
What makes this House unique
We have equipped it with pretty much anything you could possibly need for a delightful stay. The outdoor space is so relaxing, with it’s bubbling fountain, screened porch and hot tub...there’s no need to leave. If we are missing something, we are only 3 minutes away.

Susan and Rob thought of everything. They were great hosts. Everything that we could have wanted was there. This was a home away from home. Our three-day stay was memorable. We would definitely recommend it.
Relaxing Raleigh Ranch
AMAZING would be an understatement! Susan & Rob have gone above and beyond in every detail of their home to make you feel welcomed and comfortable! My family and I have been coming to NC for years to spend my grandmothers birthday with her and this time for the first time we decided to rent a house so everyone could be under one roof. I couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else! I have never been the type to write a review but I must say if you are looking for a vacation oasis please look no further! From the cozy fireplace, hot tub, s’mores in the beautiful backyard, morning coffee on the screened in porch, games for my little ones, luscious beds, and so much more this was a vacation we will never forget . We genuinely made so many family memories here and look forward to staying again whenever we are looking for a family getaway. Thank you Sue & Rob for all of your hospitality and opening your beautiful home to us. We look forward to seeing you both again!
This house has everything. It's even nicer than the pictures. Extremely comfortable. The property is so pretty. The owners are very thoughtful and nice to work with. Highly recommend. 👍�👍�
Beautiful home perfect for a family getaway!
From the screen in porch and hot tub to Netflix and a bottle of wine in the fridge, Susan and Rob have thought of every comfort you might want. They also prepared the fire pit and left ingredients for smores in the pantry! So clean and beautiful, I wish we could stay longer. Thank you for making our family vacation so wonderful.
Susan and Rob were amazing hosts and truly went above and beyond in hospitality. They provided so many little extras to make us feel at home such as, snacks, drinks, coffee, toiletry items, soft robes for each guest and even a cozy dog crate for our pet!! The fire pit was stacked and ready to go as well as all the s’more Fixins!!! You won’t be disappointed! Thank you both for making our trip so smooth. Your hospitality was much appreciated!
Thank you for the lovely review. House hunting can be very draining, so we are so glad you and your family enjoyed your time relaxing at our home. With so many folks moving to the area our home has provided quite a few future residents a place to relax while looking.
Amazing... every time
This is our “Raleigh Home” away from home. I am a Duke patient and have to come up every 3 months or so. This is our second stay here, and we are spoiled now! The house and yard are amazing and Rob and Susan have not missed a single detail. They are so warm and welcoming and EXTREMELY thoughtful. You are welcomed like family. This is the house to stay in!
Thank you so much Michele,
We absolutely love hosting you, Jay and your fur babies. We are also thrilled you consider our home your home. As long as you need we are happy to have you.
